First of all, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Isabella, but PLEASE call me Bella :) I am currently 15 years old & have been riding since August 2011. I know it's not long, but I have accomplished so much and I really have enjoyed every second of it. As you can tell by my name, I ride Western; I have since the beginning & wouldn't have it any other way. I have tried English a couple times but western is where I belong :)
Enough about me (that's not going to last very long,) now lets talk about the love of my life; Ransom <3 He is a 2001 Chestnut QH. I bought him in September 2011. You can say that we have had our ups and downs, BIG ups & BIG downs. But in the long run, I wouldn't have it any other way because it's made me a much better rider.
When I first got Ransom, everything was a struggle it seemed. He wouldn't pick his feet up, he wouldn't stand still while I tacked him up, he wouldn't let me bridle him & he was terrible to mount. Of course, this was my little beginner mind talking. Now, it's no problem..I'm used to his ear-shy problems & I've learned to deal with his rather-jerky attitude ;) He really is a great horse.
I think I've typed enough for now, let the journaling begin.
